Cookbook Review and Giveaway: Eat Istanbul, A Journey to Heart of Turkish Cuisine

Eat Istanbul (2 of 3)

As we move along on my cross country culinary cookbook journey leaving gorgeous Thailand behind with all it’s spice and vibrancy we head to another country with equally exciting flavours to discover. Eat Istanbul takes us on a journey through a fusion of middle eastern, mediterranean, asian and balkan influences that make up the heart of Turkish cuisine. Kebabs, pilafs and salads are plentiful throughout this book but authors Andy Harris and photographer David Loftus also show us dishes of elegance, using fresh, high quality ingredients.
